Catme 13/GlassEffect 19: POV through Google Glass — Monday night's mile at the Charlottesville Track Club All-Comers Meet

Constant readers will recall that I have attempted to break 7 minutes in the mile each of the past two weeks without success: times of 7:24 and then 7:13 were sadly slower than this past May's 7:04 on the very same track at a huge UVA meet witnessed by many, both in person and via a video that pretty much went viral. heh

Long story short: It was hot Monday night, around 83° and humid at the 6:45 p.m. start, much hotter than had been anticipated by yours truly.

I gave it everything I had but when I hit the 800-meter halfway mark in 3:35 I knew it wasn't gonna happen.

I did the second 800 in 3:36, bringing it in in 7:11.

One more shot at cracking 7 minutes upcoming: tonight's Downtown Mile, on the streets of Charlottesville along a course laid out by Charlottesville running guru Mark Lorenzoni so I know it's gonna be accurate.

That one'll also be recorded live and featured here in the days to come.

Allez!
